Celtic midfielder Stuart Armstrong has told the Glasgow Evening Times that the intensity and focus of the club’s training sessions hasn’t dipped.
The Bhoys have had a great season, securing the Scottish League Cup to go with the Scottish Premiership title, but Armstrong says there is still a real drive in training for the club to end the season well.
“I'm also still keeping my focus on the two games still to be played. I think that's been present also in training,” he said.
“We keep our intensity at the training ground and stay focused. We want to get the maximum amount of points.”
The club’s manager Ronny Deila has explained throughout the season that he’s not prepared to allow standards to slip.
He’s a coach who constantly demands the very best from his players and anyone who doesn’t pull their weight will quickly find themselves out of the team.
There is plenty to play for internally, with players away on loan who will return and provide competition for places, as well as the manager being likely to make moves to improve positions in the transfer market.
The squad has responded well under heavy pressure throughout the season and Deila will be watching his players closely, now that the Bhoys have won the maximum amount of silverware they can get their hands on this year.
The time for rest will come in the summer, but until then it’s important for the team to accumulate as many points as possible and to carry forward plenty of momentum.
